Buffalo Rose Beanie and Cowl
Pattern Design by KC Knitting CO
Naturally Hand Dyed Yarn by Wool & Palette
The Buffalo Rose series was born of an inspired moment: to pay homage to the mixed aesthetic and artistry of the city of Portland, Oregon and honor its folklore and history. Portland is known as the City of Roses, nestled amongst dense, lifegiving forestry and populated for years by rugged peoples living and working close to the land. Yet there is an intricacy and deliberateness to the city itself, modern and classic at the same time.
Two-in-one: This pattern includes directions for both the beanie and cowl. Both are knit bottom up, starting with a tubular cast on and transitioning directly into the colorwork chart.
Buffalo Rose Beanie: Decreases for crown shaping are written into the colorwork chart for an allover pattern from bottom to top.
Buffalo Rose Cowl: A little more than halfway up, decreases are made steadily up the front half of the cowl for a snugger fit around the neck! Finish with a tubular bind off at the top to match the bottom
